Lake Bonney
South Australia

I can't take credit for the concept behind this image, that belongs to Lincoln Harrison who recently posted the first type of image I saw done in-field. Basically, one shot is a pretty standard milky way shot of 30 seconds duration. The second shot I left on bulb while zooming in and changing focus to get the stars out of focus and at the end of the focus ring, I left it for a few seconds. Blending was done using 'lighten' mode but the slight silhouette of the zoomed in tree still bugs me !
